The Police officer who lost his life in the Ablekuma Bullion Van Robbery incident has been posthumously promoted.

During a pre-burial service held at St. George Catholic Church, Police Depot in Accra, it was announced that the slain officer has been promoted from General Lance Corporal to General Corporal.

General Corporal Callistus Amoah was fatally shot by armed robbers while on duty at Ablekuma Fan Milk in Accra on June 22, 2023.

The Inspector General of Police, Dr George Akufo Dampare said the promotion served as a recognition of the late officer’s dedication and sacrifice.

Dr Dampare expressed his heartfelt condolences to General Corporal Amoah’s family and sympathy to the institutions he worked with during his service.

“On behalf of my colleagues and the leadership of the Police, I extend my condolences to Amanda, the parents of my brother and the institutions that when my brother was alive was involved in. Since the incident happened, I have been in an unmeasurable pain which I have not been able to quantify and define until I came here today.

“Calis is a colleague to all of us at the top but to me, he is a brother because the village he comes from is close to a village I have adopted because of the benevolence of an old lady towards me,” he said.

The service was a solemn occasion where friends, family, and colleagues came together to honour the memory of the dedicated police officer who paid the ultimate price in the line of duty.

Meanwhile, the officer’s body will be transported to the family residence on Saturday, July 15, 2023.

A brief burial mass is scheduled to take place on the same day in Kologu, Navrongo in the Upper East Region.
